Iron Maiden - "Sign of the Cross" (animated video)

Eleven saintly shrouded men
Silhouettes stand against the sky
One in front with a cross held night
Come to wash my sins away

Standing alone in the wind and rain
Feeling the fear that is growing
Sensing the change in the tide again
Brought by the storm that is brewing
Feel the anxiety hold off the fear
Some of the doubt in the things you believe
Now that your faith will be put to the test
Nothing to do but await that is coming

Why then is god still protecting me
Even when I don't deserve it
Thought I am blessed with an inner strength
Some they would call it a penance
Why am I meant to face this alone
Asking the question time and again
Praying to god won't keep me alive
Inside my head feel the fear start to rise...

They'll be saying their prayers when the moment comes
There'll be penace to pay when it's judgement day
And the guilty'll be bleed when that moment comes
They'll be coming to claim, take your soul away

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose, a fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

They'll be coming to bring the eternal flame
They'll be bringing us all immortality
Holding communion so the world be blessed
My creator, my god'll lay my soul to rest

Lost the love of heaven above
Chose the lust of the earth below
Eleven saintly shrouded men
Came to wash my sins away

Ο Val Andrade είναι fan της μουσικής των Iron Maiden και -ως animator- δημιουργεί εντυπωσιακά animated videos βασισμένα σε τραγούδια της Βρετανικής μπάντας. Η πιο πρόσφατη δημιουργία του αφορά την οπτικοποίηση του τραγουδιού "Sign of the Cross", το οποίο ακούσαμε στον δίσκο του Βρετανικού συγκροτήματος "The X Factor" (το εναρκτήριο τραγούδι) που κυκλοφόρησε το φθινόπωρο του 1995 κι ήταν το πρώτο album των Iron Maiden με τον Blaze Bayley στα φωνητικά.

  1. Κακή επιλογή ο Blaze Bayley. Φωνή για διαφορετική μουσική από εκείνη των Maiden. Απορώ με το σκεπτικό τους.

    1. Μεγάλο θέμα συζήτησης αυτό. Αρκετές φορές οι μπάντες πάνε σε διαφορετικού τύπου τραγουδιστή από εκείνον που αποχώρησε για να αποφευχθεί η σύγκριση, η οποία είναι συνήθως σε βάρος του νέου...
